Unidentified aircraft (3 lights like car headlights) near Interstate 10 Arizona City, AZ.

Late night of 27-28 August 2007 off Interstate 10 heading from Phoenix to Tucson Arizona, near Arizona City, I spotted two lights off to the right side of the road. One was white, the other blueish. At first I thought it was just an airplane and then the white light seemed to shine a spotlight up into the sky (at the moon). It was during a lunar eclipse. I pulled over to the side of the road and proceeded to watch it for a while. The aircraft appeared triangular, but I am basing this on the positioning of the lights. The aircraft would continue to do the same pattern over and over. It is somewhat hard to explain, but the two lights would seem to disappear and three lights (much like headlights of a car) would come on. The aircraft would come towards the edge of the freeway, and spotlight the moon, flip over upside down, and then turn away. It would then turn around, turn on the three bright lights as it came back towards the freeway. It would again spotlight the moon, flip upside down ( which would now be right side up) again and head away. It made very little noise but I could faintly hear it. It was in the vicinity of a small airport and may have just been a small airplane, but I have never seen an airplane stay upside down for as long as this one was. I also haven't seen an airplane with lights such as this, which gave it a triangular appearance. If anyone knows what this was please let me know.
